MU Law Analysis


All Other: The EB-2 has been current for many years. The EB-3 remains positive, gaining 6 more weeks this month. These dates continue to be very favorable. We expect that All Other dates will continue to be positive for the foreseeable future.

China: EB-2 progressed by one month. EB-3 has progressed by about two years in just the last few months. This is great news for this category. EB-2 continues to lag behind EB-3. The DOS expects the EB-2 and EB-3 to re-balance at some point in the future.

India: EB-2 moved ahead about 3 weeks to November 2008. Six months ago it was 01MAY05. This represents a three-and one half year movement in just six months. This trend may continue. EB-3 moved three weeks. Our sense is that EB3 will only move by weeks in the forthcoming months.

Mexico: Mirrors All Other in all aspects.

Philippines: EB-3 moved ahead almost two more months. MU Law believes that Philippines EB-3 will continue to steadily move forward in the coming months. We expect it to move into 2009 in the by this spring or early summer.

Dates of Filing

Applications with these priority dates should see their Consular Process application progress. The USCIS may allow filing of the I-485 Adjustment of Status, provided that the USCIS issues its monthly authorization.
